By | 14 August, 2017 | 0 comments

A city break is often synonymous with spending a lot of money, but you don’t always have to spend a lot to have a great trip. Here are five ideas for enjoying Barcelona on not spending a single euro while visiting Barcelona for free.

Santa María del Mar

Basilica of Santa María del Mar

One of the jewels of Catalan gothic architecture is the Basillica of Santa María del Mar, known as the Cathedral of the Sea, as it was built in the old fisherman’s quarter. Here you can admire gothic style at its finest, its structure and its vivid colours that are sure to catch your attention. You’ll find it located in the Born district, where you can stroll the streets and visit the Basilica, where every new detail you spot will be more beautiful than the last.

Paseo de Gracia

One of the most notorious streets in Barcelona – and not just for its fashion boutiques, here you can see the four most beautiful buildings in the city. Casa Ametller, casa Batlló, casa Lleó Morera and La Pedrera, are, without doubt, the four most beautiful buildings in Barcelona. Enjoy a stroll through the modernism of the city, soaking up the creativity of the architects who created these magnificent buildings in an effort to prove who was best.

Anilla Olímpica

Enjoy a visit to remember the Olympics, which propelled Barcelona to becoming a truly international city. The Lluís Companys Olympic Stadium, the Olympic flame that Rebollo ignited with an arrow, the Palau Sant Jordi stadium… this is a route where you can really see the essence of the Olympic city.

La Barceloneta

One of the most emblematic neighbourhoods of the city. The narrow streets expertly show off the charm of Barcelona and the beach will let you enjoy life by the sea in both winter and summer. Breathe in the fresh air of the Mediterranean in one of the neighborhoods that really marks the rhythm of the city.

Biblioteca de la Universidad Central

Located in plaza de la Universidad, it’s open during the academic year and is a unique opportunity to see a literary wonder. Its 500 years of history and million and a half different volumes are enough to warrant a visit to this genuinely unique space.

As you can see, there are lots of ways to enjoy free Barcelona, get to know its hidden gems, its spirit and charm by visiting unique locations that will make your trip unforgettable.
